About me

I am Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in New York. I graduated with my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh. Since that time, I have worked with adults, couples, individuals and families. I have vast experience in crisis unit in-patient behavioral health. I have worked at several crisis stabilization units for both adults and children in Fort Myers, Florida as well as Plattsburgh, NY. I have worked in a Neuropsychology Clinic as well as Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center (ADAC) developing group programs for clients. I am fascinated by phenomenon’s that affect humans and how individuals process and experience those phenomenon’s. I have participated in several research studies broadly looking at experiences of many types of individuals. I have worked on a quantitative study about the experiences of minority Jewish women immigrants in Canada. I presented the results of that study at McGill University Education Graduate Student Society. I have also presented at the North Eastern Evolutionary Psychological Society (NEEPS) on the impact of life defeat and victory on mood and attachment patterns. I was also involved in a study that involved looking at adult experiences of gender-based violence. I have experience using Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client centered therapy, and other Cognitive Behavioral therapies, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cinematherapy.
